Postcards From Spain 1


Four hours in the Prado Museum today surrounded by Rubens and Goya and El Bosco and Carravagio, and the highlight for me? The typo on the plaque beside a famous painting called The Conversion Of The Duke Of Gandia which explained that what was going on in the painting was that the Duke had just "opened the coffin and looked in at the rooting corpse."

Maybe it ain't no typo, maybe the corpse now has roots, becoming one with earth. haha.
